1st XI Cricket v Moor Park (H)

1st XI Cricket v Moor Park (H)

Match drawn. Abberley 106 (Mr Extras 40, Ed R-D 27) Moor Park 53-9 (Ed P 5-3, Lysander 2-14)

On an afternoon graced by fly-bys from a Chinook and a Hercules, many of our batsmen batted like Samson, but after Delilah’s snips. Our lack of match practice meant that tidy opposition bowling was treated with all the respect and suspicion of novice bomb disposal operatives. Fortunately, Ed R-D played very sensibly and Moor Park were generous with extras . We were indebted to Harry B-V for his 11 not out at the end of our innings.

106 was never going to be easy to chase but our guests chose to bat defensively in making just 30 in the final 20 overs of their innings. I had to remonstrate with a mid-on fielder who declared “This is getting pretty tedious”. Lysander caught a super catch off his own bowling for the first of two wickets. However, Algy and Ed P were our best bowlers. We almost had enough time to finish off Moor Park, but they were indebted to their opening bat who remained not out on 30.
